. the american-led bombing of libya. and the nuclear crisis in japan. one major question about the assault on libya, what happened to the media's skepticism? u.s. war planes hitting targets in libya for a second day today and i have to say this at the outset. the media get excited by war, the journalistic insulin starts pumping as we talk about cruise missiles and put up the maps and have retired generals on and sometimes something is lost, reminds me of eight years ago when shock and awe was reigned down upon baghdad and the media failed to ask questions. i looked at my "new york times" this morning and looked at my "washington post" and didn't see any editorials about the no-fly position. to newspapers don't see the excepty cal questions. what are if they are american casualties? do you stop this operation with gadhafi still in power? these are the questions we need to be asking. to help us answer them. rome hartman, former executive producer of the cbs news. and jamie mcentear, founder of the line of departure blog and former correspondent for cnn. where are the skeptical questions? >>

discussion without addressing japan first. this is a show that is pretaped before the sunday morning time slot, so things may have changed. >> yes. >> but assuming things are progressing, what do we know economically about what this is going to mean? >> well, the two key aspects about japan and its relationship to the united states, one is on the output of production site. the semiconductors, so many of the components that go into automobiles and high-tech goods come from japan, are put into u.s. products and then shipped globally. the second aspect is the financial aspect. japan is a major buyer of u.s. financial assets, particularly u.s. treasuries, and they are a major capital exporter. so, what has bothered people recently is that japan's semiconductor production has been hit as well as their willingness to finance global investment. they've pulled back. a lot of that money is coming back into japan. it strengthened the yen relative to the dollar, but it also has a bias on interest rates. >> explain that to me. i wrote that down. the yen rose to new highs as economists expected funds

tonight two units at japan's nuclear plant have cooled down enough to be declared under control. the small victory comes after days of pumping water into the fuel storage pools. as those two units cooled down, the pressure rose in a third reactor. the units began overheating and releasing radiation into the air after the tsunami disrupted the plants cooling system. as the world watches to see if the plantings into meltdown, there are concerns about the spent fuel rods. those contain higher levels of radiation than the nuclear reactors themselves. some scientists are saying this could have been for seen as a contingency plan put in place. while radiation is a carcinogen, it's hard to tell what health concerns could arise. >> the radiation today and yesterday into the area surrounding the fukushima nuclear power plant are lower than the radiation fields that were observed in the chernobyl accident at the same distances. >> nearly 80% of france's population relies on nuclear power. china announced a moratorium on new china plants. now there is renewed talks about trying to move away from nucl
